My dear friend Michal is one of the "hormigas" making small, Mexican paper flowers for the book release party! Here is his first batch. They look even more lovely in person. You can't see the green stems, but we will be attaching bookmarks from Grand Central Publishing (featuring all their Latino-themed titles) and giving them away as party favors to attendees. Makes you want to come, right?

The book release party for Damas, Dramas, and Ana Ruiz is August 18, from 6pm to 8pm at Cuba Libre in Austin, Texas.


  1. SO pretty! I wish I could be there!

  2. Congrats on your new book! Nice to have another Acosta on the bookshelves. (There's Oscar, too.)

  3. Hey Marta, thanks for the shout out. Besides Oscar Z, I'm happy that we are LATINA writers.
